Re: Query for Hardware configuration
Hi Stuti,

There is a pretty good, though somewhat dated, post about picking
hardware on the Cloudera blog:


Things I would add to bring it more up to date:

1) More hard drives, a lot of organizations are using 8 or 12 drives these days.
2) If you go with 12 drives, you might want dual hexacore CPUs.

Like the post says, it's highly workload and data size dependent so
without more details, I can't give you a better recommendation.
